How to choose the right sample type for detection of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae

On this page, you will find a series of videos showing how to collect samples to be used for detection of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae. Different sampling techniques will have their own advantages and disadvantages. The probability to detect Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae varies as well. Some samples can be collected in live pigs, while others can only be collected post-mortem. It would be ideal to work on a diagnostic plan with a veterinary professional or a diagnostician in order to decide which sample type is the most appropriate for your situation.
